Hello everyone! I'm working on restoring a '85 CR500. Got to the rear wheel and about to throw a MX33 on it. When I pulled the old, old, old tire I found some corrosion:

Will any 36 hole rim work? I'm concerned about the angles of the holes ... more »

Fun to read through your build! I’m 1/2 inch shorter than you and so cool to see another tall guy riding. I’m mid way through my ‘85 CR500 build. I’ll post up in my own thread later. Thanks again for sharing your build!

Don't worry, I bought a ramp from you a couple weeks ago and would've bought a stand too if you had one that didn't have KTM all over it

Don't want to derail the other thread. Disclaimer: I was a huge RMATV supporter growing up in Utah, racing desert, moto and supermoto. I've spent some coin there over the years. Ordered some parts last week that were supposed to arrive Thursday 7/12.

Holy shit, that's ironic. In my line of business, we take care of the customer then argue with the shipper behind the scenes. I would never put the customer in the middle to figure it out.

At least you got it. I ordered grips/bars/various bolts etc. last Monday. OnTrac delivered somewhere else and RMATV is giving me a bunch of shit about investigation after OnTrac already admitted to giving it to someone else. Their communication has been ... more »

YZ 490 craigslist ad LINKY I'm having trouble ID-ing this bike. Looks like WR 500 rear plastic and front end. Exhaust looks odd for a 490 as well. Any ideas? EDIT: prolly should've put this in Old School
